Significant Factor(s):

I was patient.

The Story:

The first time I caught this fish, I had let my bait sit until the line moved, then the fight was on and I landed the fish after about twenty minutes. I had no leader on so I had to be careful. The second time I caught the Pike I was using a float. I saw the float move and go completly under the water. I counted to three and set the hook.
